Home Remodel Planning Guide

Posted by Lydia Solis on Oct 8 2012

We understand that your house is your home. If you’re planning a remodel instead of buildingOpen Kitchen Floor Plans from scratch or buying a new one, it’s probably because you love the features in your home. These features are what made you fall in love with the house and buy it. We want to help you organize your home remodel making it feel new and refreshed without eliminating the main features of the home.

Planning Your Remodeling Project

Now that it is time to begin planning your home remodel, let’s think the things you want to change about your home, and the things you want to keep. We can start by creating a list. This list is very similar to a pro’s and cons but we’ll label one side “change” and the other side “keep”. Here is an example of how we set up our list:

Change

                                Keep                               

Create more open space

Built-in shelving

Larger Master Bath

Hardwood floors

More natural light

Arched doorways

Bigger kitchen with an island

 

 One of the most difficult challenge that remodeling homeowners face, is staying within a realistic budget. You’re given this blank canvas and it’s very easy to get carried away with it. Here is another list that you can use to help you organize where your budget should go. 

Essential

Would be Nice

If the Budget Allows

Increase counter space in the kitchen

Granite countertops for the kitchen

Add steam shower to Master Bathroom

Re-do the Master Bathroom

Add tile floor in mudroom

Create a new patio area for grill and hot tub

Add a guest bathroom

New carpet in basement/ recreation room

 

Open space between kitchen and family room

 

 

 These lists that we have created are just examples of how you can better organize your home remodel. They are simply here to help you prioritize the budget of your home remodel. Be sure to create your remodeling list before you start any project. Have it ready when you meet with contractors so that they may give you’re a more thorough estimate as to how much each pinpointed project might cost.
